Sassuolo have beaten Pro Piacenza 2-0 this afternoon with goals coming from Matteo Brighi and Jasmin Kurtic.
Eusebio Di Francesco named a strong line-up for the game against their lower-League opponents.
And the Neroverdi quickly asserted their dominance, with Bright netting after only 16 minutes.
Krtic struck home midway through the first half to double their lead, and after a host of changes at the break, the game became slightly disjointed and the goals dried up.
Sassuolo: Pomini; Cannavaro, Terranova, Acerbi, Longhi; Brighi, Magnanelli, Kurtic; Sereni, Floccari, Floro Flores
